    OneTwo,

    Did you do a Google search on that error message?

    That should ALWAYS be step #1. Then you will get everything ever written on the subject.

    Good Luck,

    onetwo, it appears as though the BITS service isn't working. There are published workarounds to this, but some of these are for XP/Vista OS's.

    Have you done a full virus scan with WD since install, or one with MBAM? If so, and all is clean, I'd recommend a refresh or reset as opposed to tinkering with the registry on a beta OS, which Windows 8 CP is.

    If you decide to do either, be sure to have your install disk on hand. The program may ask for it to be inserted to complete the task. Refresh & Reset are available through Recovery, which is in the Action Center (the white flag on the lower right hand of the screen). Be sure to backup any data & bookmarks beforehand, as a Reset will wipe everything & start fresh.
